Forever Your Earl (Wicked Quills of London #1) by Eva Leigh

Eleanor Hawke loves a good scandal. And readers of her successful gossip rag live for the exploits of her favorite subject: Daniel Balfour, the notorious Earl of Ashford. So when the earl himself marches into her office and invites her to experience his illicit pursuits firsthand, Eleanor is stunned. Gambling hells, phaeton races, masquerades . . . What more could a scandal writer want than a secret look into the life of this devilishly handsome rake?

Daniel has secrets, and if The Hawk's Eye gets wind of them, a man's life could be at stake. And what better way to distract a gossip than by feeding her the scandal she desperately craves? But Daniel never expected the sharp mind and biting wit of the beautiful writer, and their desire for each other threatens even his best-laid plans.

But when Eleanor learns the truth of his deception, Daniel will do anything to prove a romance between a commoner and an earl could really last forever.

Forever Your Earl is the first book in Eva Leigh’s Wicked Quills of London series and I loved it! I was blown away by to think this could possibly be Ms. Leigh’s debut, until I learned that Eva Leigh is, in fact, Zoë Archer – another favorite author of mine.

There are already many excellent reviews of this story, so I’ll keep mine short. I’ve read some of Zoë Archer’s Steampunk Nemesis Unlimited books and loved them, and had been hoping she’d write straight historical romance, too, because I knew they’d be stories brilliantly told, and I was right. A solid story, lot’s clever dialog, sexual chemistry that's off the charts, and laugh out loud moments has made Forever Your Earl an absolute delight to read, and I am sooooo looking forward to more!

An ARC was provided by Avon Books. In appreciation I’m giving them an honest review.
